Was Taika Waititi pulled out of the movie? The director was surprised when this scene was played in Thor: Love and Thunder without the director’s knowledge. The scene took place during the end credits which surprised the director-actor duo Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth! It seems neither Taika Waititi nor any of the cast members were oblivious to the film taking place.

Taika Waititi was surprised about Thor 5

Thor: Love and Thunder was supposed to be a sendoff for the Australian actor Chris Hemsworth who has been playing the titular character of Thor, the God of Thunder (also the God of Hammers). But when the end credits rolled up a card reading,

“Thor will return”

Apparently, this came as a big shock to the director of the film Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth as well! Speaking at an interview with Insider, here’s what the director had to say for himself:

“Well, guess what? That was a surprise to me, too. I’m not joking. I saw it in the theater and I was like, ‘Oh, sh*t. Really?’ Even Chris was like, ‘What?’ But, of course, he’ll be back. He’s the best character. I mean, I may be a little biased, but he’s the most fun to watch.”

Yes, there were 4 editors associated with the film. Think that’s where the unexpected card popped up at the end.

Marvel Studios had been imagining the entire plot of Avengers: Endgame since the first Iron Man film came out in 2010. Therefore, it is surprising that Marvel hadn’t consulted Chris Hemsworth considering he is the main character of the entire Thor franchise! We don’t know whether or not there will be a Thor 5 or not. We can only speculate and watch as the world goes crazier out there (the Joker would have been proud).

Thor: Love and Thunder is currently screening in all the theaters worldwide with a pretty good box-office collection so far.
